Safe sleep tips

Here are some of the most important things for parents and caregivers to know about children's safety when sleeping.

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

Creating a safe sleep environment for your baby will help him or her sleep safely and reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

Cribs, cradles and bassinets

Babies spend a lot of time in their cribs, cradles, and bassinets. To make sure yours is safe to use, check Health Canada's Consumer Product Recalls to find out about products that have been recalled.

Bunk beds

Bunk beds are convenient and fun ways for kids to share a bedroom. To make sure your children enjoy their bunk safely, be clear with them about the "rules" of use, and check that the bed you own (or are thinking of buying) meets current safety standards.

Children's sleepwear

Children's sleepwear sold in Canada must meet strict flammability requirements that improve safety.
